The P-51D Mustang IV RAF No.19 Sqn "Dooleybird" was a specific fighter aircraft flown by Flight Lieutenant Arthur S. "Joe" Doley during World War II.

Here's a breakdown of the details we can glean:

  • Aircraft: P-51D Mustang Mk IV - This refers to a British designation for the P-51D Mustang, a long-range American fighter-bomber known for its powerful engine and impressive range. The Mk IV specifically refers to Mustangs delivered to the RAF with the Packard V-1650 engine, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine.

  • Squadron: RAF No. 19 Squadron - This was a squadron of the Royal Air Force (RAF) that operated the Mustang during the later stages of World War II.

  • Pilot: Flight Lieutenant Arthur S. "Joe" Doley - Doley transitioned to No. 19 Squadron in February 1945, flying Mustangs on long-range operations over the North Sea.

  • Nickname: "Dooleybird" - This personalized nickname was painted on the left side of the fuselage, likely reflecting Doley's own identity with the aircraft.

Additional Points:

  • Doley previously flew Spitfires and Hurricanes with other RAF squadrons during the war.
  • The "Dooleybird" was a natural metal finish Mustang, possibly replacing an earlier weathered aircraft.
  • Doley flew the "Dooleybird" on numerous shipping strike protection missions in the North Sea during the final weeks of WWII.
